Reservations for the Garden Rocks Dining Packages are open. With a Dining Package, you will pay a set price for your meal, and then enjoy reserved seating at the concert that evening.
The participating restaurants that you can reserve are Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Biergarten Restaurant, Coral Reef Restaurant, Garden Grill Restaurant, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Rose & Crown Dining Room, and Spice Table Road. Book carefully, because just dining at a participating restaurant will not get you a Dining Package voucher. You have to book a Garden Rocks Dining Package, which runs about $15 more per person than a regular meal.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse offers same-day Dining Packages. These can be very hard to obtain. From what I’ve been told (I don’t know if it’s factual or not), the counter service restaurant gets any vouchers that are left over. They might have a hundred, they might not have any. Don’t count on Regal Eagle if you want a voucher, especially for the more popular concerts. If you want to try, arrive as early as possible. A sign outside will state whether or not there are any packages available, and for which show.
If you don’t get the reservation that you want, keep checking back. Reservations open up all the time. I was able to get the exact reservation that I wanted for the Candlelight Processional less than 72 hours before the show. I’ve also seen plenty of reservations open up the morning of a concert. People change their minds and cancel more often than you might think!
In case you missed it, here’s the list of Garden Rocks Artists for 2024. Garden Rocks Concerts are free to attend, if you have admittance to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. There is a Standby Line for those who didn’t purchase a Dining Package. We usually go standby, and my daughter and I have always gotten a seat.
